Kristaps Porzingis could return to the lineup of the Dallas Mavericks in the game against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday.

According to Dallas head coach Jason Kidd, Porzingis is ‘progressing’ in his recovery from a lower back injury. The Latvian big man is dealing with lower back stiffness and has missed the last three games.

He is also out vs the Miami Heat on Tuesday, but Kidd is hopeful he will make his return to the lineup tomorrow. Kristaps Porzingis hasn’t played since October 28. For their part, the Mavs have started the season with a 4-2 record.

The Dallas Mavericks have emerged as one of the betting favorites to claim the title, with Luka Doncic and Porzingis as the leaders. Visit top betting website Pickswise for the latest odds in all NBA games.
